    Oh yes ... oh yes ...

    It's time.

    ["let's get it started" by Black Eyed Peas]

    I think it's time for all to bring it, because the level of domination I've had at the Talkbass Fantasy Football League, well, it's just frightening. I might hold out from camp, and wait for Paul to send me a fat check, because I'm grossly underpaid!

    Let's recap, as always:

    Year 1
    Jazzbo wins! Of course.

    Year 2
    Farley wins. Fluke!

    Year 3
    Jazzbo ... yet ... again. Oh why does anybody else even try!?

    Year 4
    Farley wins. Dumb chance!!!

    Jazzbo vs. Farley this year for all to watch. Of course, anybody else can play, but why bother ...

    Oh, it's on.

    Okay, here's the way it works:

    PM me for the league info to join. Spots are saved for farley, jrthebassguy, embellisher, jimk and cassanova. After, it's fair game. 10 teams, so that leaves 4 spots.

    We'll do a live draft again this year, because it seemed to work well enough last year.

    Sound good!?

    If you can stand some competition from a new franchise, I'd love to join in.

    But, if not I understand. Nobody ever likes getting whooped by the newbie. :smug:
     
  3. Thanks for reserving me a spot, Jazzbo.


    This year I've done some homework. I won't make the same mistakes again - like choosing Matt Hasselbeck :rollno:

    Fluke???

    Dumb Chance???

    :eyebrow:

    I'm good for the live draft also. Saturday afternoon 12:00EDT works for me as well. Late Aug - early Sep?
     
  11. The Fighting Amish are go!

    If the draft is done on a saturday or sunday, I'll need to take off work.


    - And yes, I will take off work if I need to.


    Live drafts really change the season for you, so you can't just say you got a bad draft if you keep losing.

    I recall you missed it...& still ended up with a killer team!

    Last year's opening moments-
    I barely get home in time, barely log-on(Dial-Up)...I see guys are yapping in the little Live Chat thingee. Then I notice-
    "Klowns On The Clock".
    Damn! Uh, Priest Holmes' name hasn't been greyed-out?! I click on him & poof...he's goes onto my roster.
    Meanwhile, the oblivious ones are still yapping in the Chat area. Finally, one of them sez, "Hey, the Klowns just got Priest Holmes".
    You could almost hear the scrambling of papers over my 'puter's speakers.

    I did miss last year's draft, but it wound up okay for me!

    Check out the site, I signed up for a time already. Unfortunately, there are no Saturdays or Sundays available. Can you believe that?

    As far as everybody else looking to get in, let me check how many slots are still around, and who's signed up already. It'll take a few moments, so if you're looking to get in, please be patient. Thanks.

    10 teams set, ready to go. I'm sorry to all those that wanted to play, but we filled up. Maybe next year we can expand it, but it's hard to do with too many teams.

    Jazzbo: Jazzers
    Farley: The Flying Hellfish
    bassman314: The Highlanders
    mikemulcahy: Slobberdawgs
    JimK: Klowns
    jrthebassguy: The Fighting Amish
    clay: Ice
    jive1: The Jive
    stealthco4545: Fired By Union

    Who is The Smithies??
